    The quickest way to describe Halt and Catch Fire is to say it's Mad Men for the 80s, with the computer boom replacing advertisement. I like it more though. In part because it doesn't dwell on the cultural differences between the era and today, and instead creates an exciting look at how the ubiquitous technology we have today evolved, while also getting us invested in the personal lives of its Jobs/Gates/Goldberg types. The people we follow are always on the bleeding edge - portable computers, online gaming, the internet... - and their stories adaptations of the challenges, reversals and backstabbing that are part of actual history. The first two seasons create a crisis every episode that must be overcome with cleverness, so are the most fun. The two latter seasons are more in service of the personal drama, but it's an investment that pays off by the end, whether you think the show sacrificed something fun to get there or not. A very nice surprised that left me more informed on the one hand, and teary-eyed on the other. 4 years 3 months ago
